Nicky Wood is a product of his environment. Born and raised in Washington, DC, he incorporates the many styles of his home town into his music. He is a lover of hip-hop and jazz and, to a slightly lesser extent, punk rock, go-go and blues. He has been playing jazz guitar and producing in the hip-hop genre for over 10 years with production credits for local DMV artists such as Andréa Wood, Fallen Kings, Kayo, FHTMG, Yellow Cloud, and more. He has been rapping in the DC and Philly music scenes for almost as long, and his voice can be heard on albums by Corporate Responsibility, and Andréa Wood, as well as on his own debut album, I Don't Do This For Free, which came out just this summer. As a guitarist and as a rapper he has performed frequently in DC, Philadelphia, and New York as well as in Amsterdam, Prague, and as a part of the Natura-Arte festival in Havana, Cuba. He also performs frequently with the groups Flounder Warehouse and Lee Mo.
